Olive orchard venue
Our couples’ story starts here…The olive trees were our starting point, a standard to the Portuguese landscape and to the golden olive oil that enriches our traditional dishes, coveted all around the world. Choosing an Autumn setting, right as the harvest season was starting, provided us olive trees filled with black olives. Their elegant touch was the olive on top of the cake!
Olive wedding ideas
For all of you olive lovers here’s a few cute ideas for how to incorporate them into your wedding in classy and beautiful ways. 1. Use olive leaf branches with your flowers, they can be incorporated into anything from your bouquet (like the one above) to your centerpieces, and even to garnish your cake! 2. Think olive themed wedding favors. There are so many great ways to do it including olive tree saplings, a jar of your favorite olives (maybe a mix of the bride and grooms favorite?), or vials of olive oil, they can even have different flavors! 3. Repeat olive leaf motifs throughout your stationery and signage to pull everything together. 4. Stock up the bar with olives and party the night away!
Antique Getaway Car
The remaining details all came together upon sharing the inspiration with the vendors. We found the ingredients for an elegant photo shoot packed with subtle yet bold details. The autumn colors, the gold and the glowing light… Without forgetting the pièce de résistance that brightened the second part of the shoot: our antique car!
